Alter Bridge has always worked to outdo their previous efforts in every aspect of their career. The same holds true for the newest video for their debut single, ‘Show Me A Leader’ that was released today.
The video is based on a concept created by Alter Bridge and director, Zev Deans that brings life to the story told in the single’s lyrics. The animated video shows the world in turmoil as politicians (represented by suits with megaphone heads) are broadcasting harmful messages to the public. The band is on a roof with a satellite dish performing ‘Show Me A Leader’ to counteract the harmful messages being spread.
The video is visually captivating and showcases Zev’s talent and unique creative style, something the band was immediately drawn to.
The video premiered on Vevo and can be seen here.
‘Show Me A Leader’ is the debut single from Alter Bridge’s fifth studio album, The Last Hero. The album is scheduled for worldwide release on the 7th of October by Napalm Records/Rocket. The Last Hero was produced by long-time friend and collaborator, Michael ‘Elvis’ Baskette (Slash, Tremonti, Trivium, etc.) and mastered by Grammy award winner, Ted Jensen.
Alter Bridge burst onto the music scene in 2004 with the release of their gold-selling debut, One Day Remains. In 2007, the band released Blackbird, the album that elevated the band’s profile worldwide. The epic solo in the title track ‘Blackbird’ was voted “Greatest Guitar Solo Of All Time” by Guitarist Magazine. ABIII was released in 2010 and the single ‘Isolation’ gave the band their first #1 single. In 2013, the band reached an elevated creative and critical plateau with Fortress. It bowed at #12 on the Billboard Top 200, moving over 30,000 copies first-week and earning unanimous tastemaker praise. Alter Bridge has appeared on The Tonight Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live and their music has been used by the WWE, Major League Baseball and NASCAR to name a few.
Alter Bridge is Myles Kennedy on vocals/guitars, Mark Tremonti on guitars/vocals, Brian Marshall on bass and Scott Phillips on drums.
